Roasted Carnival Squash

Carnival Squash is similar to Acorn Squash, its much prettier though! You can find it at most stores and is just as delicious as its cousin the acorn squash. It has a nutty, buttery texture and flavor and makes a delicious side kick to any dish.

1 Tbs Olive oil
Salt & Crushed Black Pepper
SplenDishes Pumpkin Pie Spice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
